Subject [jira] Commented: (HDFS-457) better handling of volume failure in Data Node storage
Date Tue, 23 Nov 2010 09:03:16 GMT

Eli Collins commented on HDFS-457:
----------------------------------

Hey Uma,

Think you're looking at an old patch, all the accesses of removedVols in checkDirs are first
checked against null in trunk.

Thanks,
Eli

> Current implementation shuts DataNode down completely when one of the configured volumes
of the storage fails.
> This is rather wasteful behavior because it  decreases utilization (good storage becomes
unavailable) and imposes extra load on the system (replication of the blocks from the good
volumes). These problems will become even more prominent when we move to mixed (heterogeneous)
clusters with many more volumes per Data Node.
